Organisers hail largest wave of simultaneous protests seen in Britain for years as people turn out in over 50 towns and cities
Lizzie and Dnieper are new to the protest scene. But the mounting economic crunch, cost of living crisis and climate emergency have galvanised the young family.
“It’s a little bit scary out there at the moment – things are escalating fast,” said Dnieper Cruz, 32. Turning to his daughter Lumi, almost three, the teacher added: “We just want a better future for her generation.”
His partner, solicitor Lizzie Manchester, 32, said: “It’s time for us as a family to make our voices heard.”
